Inside Somalias vicious cycle of deforestation for charcoal

As gas prices rise Somalis are turning to the affordable energy source, driving unsustainable logging as al-Shabaab condemns but profits from the trade In Mogadishu, the charcoal trade is thriving on the citys streets, prompted by the sharp rise in gas prices over the past two years. As more Somalis turn to charcoal as an affordable energy option, experts say the growing demand is fuelling unsustainable levels of production and accelerating climate change amid the countrys worst drought in four decades . Environmentalists say the situation is acute in the Lower Shabelle regions Wanlaweyn district, the centre of the charcoal trade, about 55 miles (90km) north-west of the capital. Continue reading...

SSLV: Satellites no longer usable, says ISRO

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Sunday said the satellites onboard its maiden Small Satellite Launch Vehicle are no longer usable after the SSLV-D1 placed them in an elliptical orbit instead of a circular one. The space agency said a committee would analyse and make recommendations into today's episode and with the implementation of those recommendations ISRO will come back soon with SSLV-D2. SSLV-D1 placed the satellites into 356 km x 76 km elliptical orbit instead of 356 km circular orbit. Satellites are no longer usable. Issue is reasonably identified. Failure of a logic to identify a sensor failure and go for a salvage action caused the deviation, ISRO said in an update on its official Twitter handle. It added a detailed statement by ISRO Chairman S Somanath will be uploaded soon. In its maiden SSLV mission, the launch vehicle carried The Earth Observation Satellite EOS-02 and the co-passenger student satellites AzaadiSAT. SSLV had suffered 'data loss' in its terminal stage, after performing as expected in all stages. It had earlier after lifted off from the spaceport here on Sunday morning.

ISROs first SSLV launched, suffers data loss at terminal stage

Space All stages performed as expected. Data loss is observed during the terminal stage. It is being analysed. Will be updated soon, ISRO said in a tweet. Agencies Twitter/ISRO Indias brand new rocket Small Satellite Launch Vehicle Developmental Flight (SSLV-D1) was successfully launched from Sriharikota on the morning of Sunday, August 7. However, about 12 minutes into its flight the rocket seems to have hit a problem. Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chairman S Somanath said that the space agencys first SSLV suffered data loss at the terminal stage, adding that all stages have performed as expected and the data loss is being analysed. Hoping to celebrate in advance the countrys 75th anniversary of Independence in style, ISRO launched its freshly minted rocket, SSLV-D1. At the end of a 7.5 hour countdown, the 34 metre long rocket broke free of the first launch pad and went up at 9.18 am. The rockets progress was smooth with all its solid fuel powered engines performing well. However, later a data loss was reported, which is being analysed by the research organisation. SSLV-D1 carried earth observation satellite EOS-02 and co-passenger students satellite AzaadiSAT on Sunday. The SSLV-D1/EOS-02 mission by the Indian space agency aims for a bigger share of the demanding SSLV market, as it can place the satellites into Low Earth Orbit. AzaadiSAT contains 75 payloads built by female students from rural regions across the country who were provided guidance. The payloads are integrated by the student team of Space Kidz India. The ground system developed by Space Kidz India will be utilised to receive the data from this satellite, ISRO said. All stages performed as expected. The first stage performed and separated, second stage performed and separated, the third stage also performed and separated, and in the terminal phase of the mission, some data loss is occurring and we are analysing the data and we will come back on the status of the satellites as well as the vehicle performance soon, Somanath said from the Mission Control Centre, minutes after the launch vehicle lifted off from the spaceport. We are currently in the process of analysing the data to conclude on the final outcome of the mission with respect to stable orbit achieved or not, please wait and we will come back, he added. SSLV-D1/EOS-02 Mission: Maiden flight of SSLV is completed. All stages performed as expected. Data loss is observed during the terminal stage. It is being analysed. Will be updated soon. ISRO (@isro) August 7, 2022 The SSLV design drivers are low cost and have low turnaround time, flexibility in accommodating multiple satellites, launch-on-demand feasibility, minimal launch infrastructure requirements and others, ISRO said. Unlike ISROs trusted workhorse the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicles (PSLV), the SSLV can carry payloads weighing up to 500 kg and deploy satellites into a 500 km low earth orbit. It uses solid fuel hydroxyl terminated polybutadiene to fire the first three stages, taking the payloads to the desired altitude. The fourth stage comprises liquid propulsion-based Velocity Trimming Module (VTM) to place the satellites into orbit. Small satellites will be a dominant factor in the global space sector, with about 7,000 satellites with a total value of $38 billion expected to be up in the sky by 2027, VK Saraswat, member, Niti Aayog, had said at a space seminar. ISROs Sunday mission is the third this year after the successful PSLV-C53 mission on June 30, which is the dedicated commercial mission of NewSpace India Limited. On February 14, ISRO successfully placed earth observation satellite EOS-04 on board its trusted workhorse PSLV-C52/EOS-04 mission. The radar imaging satellite was designed to provide high quality images under all weather conditions for applications such as agriculture, forestry and plantations.

OTTs not looking at smaller films anymore: Venkat Prabhu on anthology release

Kollywood Filmmakers Pa Ranjith, Venkat Prabhu and Chimbu Devan interacted with journalists in Chennai about their upcoming anthology Victim - Who is next?, ahead of its release on Sony LIV in August this year. Saradha U Screengrab/YouTube Ahead of the premiere of the upcoming Tamil anthology Victim - Who is next? on streaming platform Sony LIV on August 5, filmmakers Venkat Prabhu, Pa Ranjith, and Chimbu Devan, who have each directed a short in the anthology, along with filmmaker Rajesh M, spoke to the media about the making of the anthology, its OTT release, and more. The anthology features four shorts. The cast includes actors Nasser, Thambi Ramaiah, Natraj, Priya Bavani Shankar, Kalaiarasan, Guru Somasundaram, Prasanna, Amala Paul, Krish and others in prominent roles. Pa Ranjiths Dhammam which features Kalaiarasan of Sarpatta fame and Minnal Murali actor Guru Somasundaram, among others in the lead, will explore ties between land ownership and caste politics. Ranjith is known for critically acclaimed anti-caste films like Madras, Sarpatta Parambarai and Kaala, among others. Chimbu Devans film Kottai Pakku Vathalum, Mottai Maadi Sitharum is a fantasy flick about a supernatural character played by actor Nasser, who has lived for 400 years. Chimbu Devan has experimented with the concept before through the film Arai En 305-il Kadavul which featured Prakash Rajs character as a god descending to earth and living with people.Thambi Ramaiah has also been roped in for a key role in the short. M Rajeshs Mirrage, which features actors Priya Bhavani Shankar and Natraj in the lead, is a story set against the backdrop of a haunted house. In the trailer, we see a woman encountering strange instances. M Rajesh has directed films like Siva Manasula Sakthi, Oru Kal Oru Kannadi, and Boss Engira Bhaskaran, which are popular for their comedy sequences. Cinematographers R Saravanan, Sakthi Saravanan, and Thamizh A Azhagan have been roped in for the project, while Sam CS, Premgi, Ganesh Sekar and Tenma are on board as music composers. Produced by Axess Film Factory and Black Ticket Company, the anthology has been edited by Lawrence Kishore, Akash Thomas, Selva RK, and Venkat Raajen. Watch the trailer of Victim - Who is Next? Speaking about the making of the anthology, director Chimbu Devan explained how most of it was filmed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Each one of us selected a location and tried to shoot the entire short there. In my film, it was a terrace, Ranjith chose an agricultural field, and in Venkats short, it was a house, the filmmaker said. Chimbu Devan who had teamed up with Venkat Prabhu for his previous project, the anthology Kasada Tabara, also added that it was Venkat Prabhu who brought all the four directors together for Victim - Who is next? Speaking further about the making and conceptualisation, Ranjith said that it was one of the few projects where he was not tasked with the job of carrying out too many edits. It is one of the few films where I wrote a script for 15-16 pages and the visuals I shot were close to 32 minutes. It also made the process easier for the editor, Ranjith shared. Watch: 'Buddha's teachings are very essential in these times': Pa Ranjith on 'Sarpatta' Filmmaker Venkat Prabhu who recently delivered the hit political drama Maanaadu starring Silambarasan, observed that both Rajesh and he have picked genres that they have not explored much. Unlike Venkat Prabhus previous outings which were comedy dramas, his short in the anthology, Confession, stars Amala Paul and Prasanna in the lead, and is based on the story of a sniper killer who threatens to kill till he gets a confession out of a woman who lives alone. It is not very similar to my previous films, but since this was an OTT project, there was scope to push the boundaries for the woman lead, Venkat remarked. When questioned about his thoughts on the commercialisation of OTT platforms, Venkat Prabhu shared, It is true that smaller films are finding it difficult to seal OTT deals. As I mentioned earlier, so many films are released in theatres, but it is only really big action dramas or films made at a grand scale that are grabbing eyeballs. Even for films on OTT, having a star to pull audiences in, has become an important factor. If you look at the top 10 trending titles on Netflix in India, you are likely to only find projects featuring stars in the lead. There are good content-driven movies, but they dont get the same kind of attention unless there are good reviews, Venkat opined. Adding to Venkats point, Ranjith noted, Platforms like Netflix were earlier known for taking in smaller films, but nowadays, in many cases, OTT platforms are directly saying that they are not looking at smaller films. Explaining the reason behind releasing the anthology on an Over-the-top (OTT) platform, Venkat quipped, People only want to watch big films offering a visual spectacle in the theatre. They want the film to offer a true theatrical experience. This is not a trend that we are witnessing only in India. Even in America, we are seeing how Marvel and DC films are drawing people back to the cinema halls, the Chennai 600028 filmmaker expressed.

Two elephants die of electrocution in Karnatakas Kodagu, officials booked

Wildlife The incident took place at a private estate in Nellihudikeri in Kodagu district, where the forest officials had drawn the power line. TNM Staff Screegrab from Twitter/Kodagu Connect Two elephants died after they accidentally came in contact with a live 11kV power line in Nellihudikeri in Karnataka's Kodagu district on Monday, July 25. The incident took place at a private estate where the forest department authorities had drawn the power line. The male and female elephants came in contact with the live power line while passing through the estate and collapsed as a result of shock from the overhead power lines. BNN Murty, Conservator of Forests, Kodagu Circle said that the power line was damaged by constant rain, and while it was lying haywire inside the estate grounds, two elephants, a female elephant who was around 12 years old and a male elephant who was about 14, came in contact with it. Officials from the forest department and Chamundeshwari Electricity Supply Corporation (CESC) visited the spot. He said that a case has been registered under the Wildlife Act, and an FIR has been lodged against the CESC officials for their negligence. He claimed that even though CESC was instructed to cut and remove all the branches near the power lines, no necessary action was taken. Speaking of solutions to stop this from happening, Murty said that the live power lines in the coffee region, which has a substantial elephant population, must be replaced with insulated cables.He also urged to look into the trip logs and find ways to manage them as CESC recharges the power lines five minutes after the trip, without looking into the cause. L Somaraju, Superintending Engineer, Chamrajanagar-Kodagu, said that the trimming of branches takes place at regular intervals but as the incident took place in a private estate, not much information is available currently. He added that in most cases, the private estate owners don't allow CESC members to trim the branches. According to Somaraju, work on replacing power lines with insulated cables has begun in areas near human habitation. Replacing the power lines throughout the district will cost up to ten times as much, he said. As a response, Murty questioned if one could bring back the elephants lost to electrocution, The cost of replacing the power lines isn't as expensive as the lives of the elephants, he said. There is more than one instance where elephants have died from electrocution. One of the biggest mass electrocution deaths ever recorded dates back to June 2017, when four elephants from the same family were electrocuted after stepping on a broken live power line in Madikeri. As per the data provided by the Union Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, 116 elephants died of electrocution in Karnataka between 2009 and 2019.
